    Please note that this thread is for discussion of the above exams, not specific questions.

    This is a bank of solutions for past papers from the above exams. If you have a maths-related question to ask then please make a new thread in the maths forum. If you have a question about procedure or similar then this is the place to post.

    There have been many threads about the above exams and in this thread are the links to all the solution threads that have been started. As time goes on the amount of solutions available will increase and I will edit this post accordingly. If you come across a thread that should be linked to from this thread then just post and I shall add it too the list.

    If there is no hyper link then there is currently no thread so feel free to make one.

    Yay I had requested a sticky for special papers

    btw I thought that the solutions to the AEA papers are already available on the internet? (I may be mistaken)

    (I have a folder with the solutions given to me by my school)

    But no, yeah, those threads can be a good way of revising, particularly if someone reads and comments on your solution. Also, AEA questions can often be approached in more than one way, so you could learn something new from TSR solutions that Edexcel ones don't mention.

    I am also in the same boat. My maths teacher said he would enter me and as of yet he's not got round to it - think I may possibly have missed my chance.

    Hmm. Anyone know when the closing date for AEA entries is/was? I'm not sure if I'm going to take it or not, and after looking on the Edexcel website, I couldn't seem to find a date specifying the closing date for entries
    Should I ask my teacher about it?

    All I need to cover now is double angle formulae and differential equations. :woo:

    If anyone can find out that'd be cool. My exams officer hasn't been in for a few days, and I've been quite busy in the last few days to get a chance to speak to someone else who might know :erm:
    Are there other people entered at your college? If so, I think that (provided that there are still papers left) you could turn up on the day. If not, I think the entries are only really limited by how quickly the exam entries can be processed and exam papers securely delivered (at the moment, most of the exam papers for early May should already be in the safe in your sixth form / school / college) - I know that Edexel Chemistry does not guarantee chemicals to arrive in time. At the moment your are well past the 'late' deadline, but I imagine that you can still be entered within the month.

    So I've decided to put myself in for the AEA. I was looking around for a specification, and any extra information on the AEA, relating to things like what formula booklet we get, and if we can use calculators or not, and I could have sworn I'd seen something related on the Edexcel website not too long ago, but there only seem to be past papers, examiners' reports and markschemes [most of which require passwords to access]]. Can anyone help me out?
    Im sure that no calculators are allowed and this is the formula booklet we get. I also attached something like the specification ^^

    Ah thanks a lot :smile: that's calmed me that we get sum-product formulae for trig :o:
    They don't exactly take much to derive? I'd much rather they'd list stuff like the Volume of a cone/sphere as the former in particular always comes up in Mech and I keep forgetting it. :o:

    Perhaps have a go at some more recent STEP I papers? The style is completely different to AEA but the difficulty of the questions themselves should be suitable - just don't be put off if you struggle at first as most people take a while to adapt.

    I did solve a couple of STEP I questions... they are okay but they dont really help me with AEA because, as you said, the style is completely different :rolleyes: thanks anyway

    If someone else is intrested in WJEC S-Level papers ... I attached them

    [QUOTE=NesQuiK.]And also why is ff^{-1}(x)=x\Longleftrightarrow f(x)=f^{-1}(x)I started early ... as the AEA is part of my offer -.-'

    Can anyone post some relevent theorems which we have to know?

    I can start it off :

    Angle Bisector Theorem

    Rhombus Theorem

    GCSE Circle Theorems

    This is basically all i know and i fear i will come across something which requires another theorem

    And also why is ff^{-1}(x)=x\Longleftrightarrow f(x)=f^{-1}(x)

    {mod: sorry, I mangled this post by accident. I've tried to put it all back as it was...}
